Magnificent Multiplicity – Part 1

We are in a fitting time that will bring great change in our lives for the better—an expanded season for God’s sons and daughters who continue to follow Holy Spirit’s lead and make Godly decisions.

It is a time when God’s Name will be great in the earth, and we will see the exponential multiplicity of His goodness manifest—a great harvest (Jn 15:8).

This kind of increase honors God and builds His Kingdom on earth.

For many who have come out of a season of long-suffering, know that God is fitting you into a season of longstanding. 

God’s sons and daughters, who have adjusted their lens to see what God sees for them and who continue to align with and magnify The Lord, will experience His magnificent manifest opportunities.

The increase of faith in our made-whole heart will now begin to fit into these greater opportunities, which are promised roles and specific assignments God has reserved for each of us. 

This is banquet-level intimacy and honor, where as we continue to trust and rely on God, He will extend His favor for the completion of longtime promises through revealed mysteries and strategies, divine connections, contracts, etc.

This is a time, and these are places where our enemies will not be able to stand against our solidity in Christ, as we step farther along our firm foundation into new roles of authority to rule and reign with God and take greater dominion. 

False shields, such as city walls of unholiness and giants of unbelief, will not stand against God’s power.

We will be exponentially ahead of those obstacles in supernatural power and authority.

As we carefully obey God, none of that will be able to hold us back or prevent God’s will from coming forth. 

We and God make for a double door that fits perfectly together and operates in synchronicity in this wide-open space (Ps 24:7, 18:19).

This special collaboration (or co-labor) requires us to hold God’s hand of authority in glory-to-glory levels of decision-making and follow-through. For every element of promise forward. 

Done right, we will go long and experience Psalm 92:12-15 AMPC, which says, 

The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible]. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God. [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment]. [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. [Rom. 9:14.]

As we take a closer look, there are some key elements that we can learn and understand from the Israelites in their journey:

Exodus 1:12 AMP tells us, “But the more the Egyptians oppressed them, the more they multiplied and expanded, so that the Egyptians dreaded and were exasperated by the Israelites.”

In the Bible, Egypt represents worldliness.

So, in this particular scripture, when the oppression of the world came against the captive Israelites, the Israelites broke through and grew more fruitful in number. They spread to the point that their captors grieved, dreaded and feared them. 

Note that their spreading is a Godly principle, as opposed to scattering, which is ungodly. 

So, as they came together in Godliness, or God’s way, the worldliness that surrounded them literally “could not stand” them (God’s Word Translation).

God made a way through the Israelites and for them when there appeared, otherwise, to be no way. 

As the Israelites turned to God, He broke open their turnaround. And He will do the same for you and me.

King David understood this breakthrough.

He says in Psalm 18:19 TPT, “His love broke open the way and he brought me into a beautiful broad place. He rescued me—because his delight is in me!”

We know that, where there is brokenness, miracles of multiplicity occur when we hand our pieces over to The Lord (Mk 6:41-44) 

God receives those pieces and provides for our needs supernaturally, making us and our circumstances better than before. 

Now that God has strengthen us, and will continue to do so as we progress with Him into our Promised Land battles and blessings, we will, increasingly, be able to stand stronger and longer against worldly attacks.

In this way, God has made us stronger for victory-battle forward as we take courage and carefully obey Him, like Joshua’s army, which was empowered and favored by The God of Angel Armies.

Since God has healed our hearts in the secret place, what once wounded us will not stop us any longer. 

We are wiser, freer and more in tune with God as Lord of our lives. 

We now trust God more to reveal His mystery strategies, giving us specific directions and tactics that we need, when we need them, for each mission forward. 

We can now go forth in confidence. To make His Name great.

So, pray with me if you will…

Dear Lord, 

Thank You for positioning me for Your multiplication. I repent of all compromise in my life that has adversely affected Your Kingdom-building in and through me. I’m sorry, Lord. I release all deficit to You. And I choose to receive Your forgiveness. I now choose to be committed to your principles and follow You entirely. I choose to receive Your blessings of multiplicity in every area of my life for Your glory. Thank You for Your extravagant love, favor and reward. 

In Jesus’ Mighty Name. 

Amen.

Doors of Opportunity – Part 2

We know that Jesus is the Door, who stands in the gap (doorway) on our behalf. He alone holds the key and is the One who rules sovereignly over our entrance. 

Isaiah 22:22 AMPC tells us, “And the key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open.”

One meaning of the Word “doorway” is “opportunity,” which is a means of access or participation (Webster’s), “a means of achieving or escaping something” (Encarta).

As the bride of Christ, we have just entered into our Promised Land, escaping that which was behind us. We are now able to achieve God’s purpose forward in submission to Him.

Jesus has opened the door. 

But not all opportunities are of God. 

We must be led by Holy Spirit and carefully obey as Joshua did in his Promised Land.

In Philippians 3:13 TPT Paul shares wise strategy, by saying, “I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however, I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead.”

Friends, it’s time to lay down what God is finished with in former seasons. Let it go and fiercely focus on Him and what’s before us.  

It’s time to step into more of our God-given manifest inheritance.

2 Samuel 22:2 AMPC reveals a three-phase strategy that King David walked through on his way to his coronation. It says, “…The Lord is my Rock [of escape from Saul] and my Fortress [in the wilderness] and my Deliverer; [I Sam. 23:14, 25, 28.]”

This is also the process that the Israelites walked through from Egypt (Saul), through the Desert (Wilderness) and into their Promised Land (Delivered).)

It’s the same three-phase process of enthronement that we walk through along our journey to greater power and authority to rule and reign with God on earth as it is in Heaven.

The Lord has brought us through the first two phases, which was about coming to know Him as:

  1. Our escape from Saul (salvation).
  2. Our fortress in the wilderness (sanctification).

And now that we have entered into the third and final phase with The Lord, He is revealing Himself to us as:

3. Our deliverer (into and through our Promised Land), which is the fulfillment stage of promise for our inheritance-reward and much fruit (harvest).

With every step forward in this Promised Land, God will honor us as we honor Him to establish His reign on the earth by His Spirit. He will enable us to rule with Him in greater authority to impact nations. While evil self-destructs by its own sword, like Saul.

Just like King David stepped into his Kingdom inheritance of rulership, we, too, will receive promises fulfilled for Kingdom impact when we stay the course and obey God (Jos 1:7).

We will need a constant flow of living water from the Word and Spirit of God to sustain our position of enthronement here on earth (Re 22:1).

As God’s sons and daughters, we are to remain in the Vine, guard our hearts and be led by Holy Spirit for fruit production in this new season (Re 22:2).

We need to sync with God’s vision as He continues to open up the doorways to new life. 

We can acknowledge God as David did and thank Him as Daniel did when he saw and heard from The Lord.

Daniel 2:20-23 says:

Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.

As we worship God and follow His lead, we can declare Psalm 24:7 TPT, which says, “So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you.”

As we progress in this new cycle of the transfer of power, wealth and authority to God’s sons and daughters, we will witness God unseat evil and deliver territory from darkness to light for Kingdom impact (Is 22:19-22). 

God will grow His Kingdom, and we get to participate. 

Just as He did for King David and Daniel and Joshua, God will show us the way and protect us.

He will reveal His vision to us and give us strategy as we go with His Presence. 

As we remain in Him and continue to trust Him along this exciting journey, we will taste and see that He is good in all things. We will have eyes to see and ears to hear. 

So, my questions to you are:

  1. Have you had a Saul in your past that chased you closer to God (deeper, higher)?
  2. Have you found yourself in a wilderness (intimacy) season that prepped you for greater promises forward?
  3. Are you ready to experience your deliverance into those greater promises as your destiny continues to be revealed to you?

If your answers are “yes,” then you are well on your way to greater dominion His way. 

To God be the glory.
